not a religious person. but i think we should all take a moment and say a prayer of thanks for the environment we live in. for all of us who touch bay area real estate, it's really incredible how quickly things have changed. if you go back two, two and a half years and think about what the environment was in the middle of 2010, we were in a terrible environment. values were down significantly. we couldn't lease space it save ourselves and we felt it would be a long, long slug to come out of the hole we were in. here we are, barely two years later, in one of the strongest office markets in the country. the growth for is overwhelming a shrinking of real estate needs and we're not seeing that kind of growth in new york or washington. it's very select markets that we're seeing the kind of growth that you are seeing in san francisco. so we all should be grateful that we work in this very unique and interesting environment. i am also grateful to jerry and rob speyer for driving this company that can take on and capitalize projects. there are few companies able to do this. i feel very lucky to be part
of the environment and pleased to be the emcee of this event. you can tell from the display that this has something to do with some electric vehicles. so, i would like to start the program with our first presenter. and introduce to you a man who is certainly no stranger to bringing clean technology to san francisco and electric vehicles, are mayor, ed lee. [applause] >> thank you, bob. >> you for your leadership. good morning, everyone. we are going to be talking about something that i have been very interested in, and that is mobility. the ability to have technology work for you, like this microphone. we have worked hard for a number of years. i had the privilege of working with gavin newsom in the past to during his administration to create the electric vehicle infrastructure for the city and began the conversation and the collaboration with the other counties to bring an electric vehicle corridor. it signals our efforts to support the creation of infrastructure to the electric vehicle industry. of course we have encouraged the private automobile creators to join us. today is a wonderful opportun
this opportunity to kind of examine what is going on in our real estate environment, and in particular, to thank the san francisco business times for putting on this event. and i think for most of us in this room, we rely very heavily on the san francisco business times to keep track of what is going on in san francisco, and the greater bay area, in the real estate world. and it is the best source of that information for all of us. mary asked me if i would make a few observations about the general state of the real estate economy here in san francisco and as i do that, i always have to think about what to say that mary hasn't already said about it. and if you look at the real estate economy generally in our nation, and the fact that it is still soft. that we still need more jobs. that there is a recovery, but it's a slow recovery. you can't do that without thinking gee, will i sound like a politician for one or the other major political parties? and so i will steer clear of that and focus instead on san francisco and maybe we're living in a bubble, but it's a pretty wonderful bubble to be living

and innovate our new ideas for the new economy and our mutual obligations on the environment, and then there is something that paris and san francisco hold very dearly and that's an ongoing conversation about our human rights as world leaders, so it's human rights, it's the environment, it's the economy and these are the reasons why we hold our relationship with paris and with all the other great cities of the world in a sister city relationship so dearly, we learn from each other, we send delegations to each other, we welcome each other to the city but in each and every instance, we are always thinking about ideas about how we can help each other and help regions improve, so i am excited to have met with the mayor just a few minutes ago to reaffirm our relationship and we'll sign that in a few moments to document that and to promise each other that we will continue this very great relationship and we could not have done it without the involvement of our private citizens, tom horn has led a fantastic group of volunteers on our sister city committee for paris and san francisc
been done in that type of environment before, in a web environment. there are a lot of people that depend on water for drinking and other uses. >> why are you concerned and what is va rate -- uranium, what is this company? >> this company was founded by the owner of this uranium deposit in pennsylvania county. there has been some corporate structure changes recently -- i cannot really describe exactly everything that has been going on. virginia uranium is mostly owned by canadian companies that have some familiarity with uranium processing and mining. no one in virginia does because it has never been done before. >> you're concerned exactly, the effect that it would have? >> what would happen, if uranium is mined, especially processed in virginia, there is a huge amount of waste generated. when the uranium yellowcake is taken and marketed, at 85% of their real activity remains in the waste products. those products are just buried in facilities very much like the one that we story municipal solid waste, hole in the ground, plastic liner, filling it up with this toxic waste, cov

, about hoour environment, how to improve life for more people, how to make an expensive city more affordable to more people, how to utilize the strengths of the city as a great tourist city. how we can get more folks to come and experience the wonders of the city. maybe they will make their stake here. these panel members have decided to make their stake here. they risked reputation, may be small amounts of money. if they had a lot of money, they may not have had to start this. they have also done it for the right reasons. they want to experience the city in a different way, but one that is in the tradition of san francisco and is reflective of mine, welcoming more people to share in the economy. hopefully the right reasons will create more jobs and get more entrepreneurs involved. i have often said this can be the city for the 100%. everybody can have a chance to fulfill their dreams and make sure they can have a stable income for themselves and their families. i think we are on the verge of discussing things that would invite other members of our city family, department heads, t
about emotional, financial, social, spiritual and environments, occupational and intellectual as well as physical aspects of ourselves. we call this the eighth dimension model of wellness. this is how we conceptualize wellness. we care about physical wellness because people are physically sick and many are dying 25 years before the general population. we care about intellectual wellness because we need healthy minds and healthy bodies in the knowledge to reclaim and manage our lives in recovery. we care about social wellness because the conditions bring about social isolation, leading people further from their healthy recovery. we care about spiritual wellness because disease, all these diseases, robs us of our sense of meaning, purpose and spiritual connectedness. we care about mental and emotional wellness week as people need clear, wide lines in order to live productive lives and pursue recovery. we care about environmental wellness because it's impossible for people to feel better or well in places or spaces where there is overcrowding, stress, pollution and other toxins in both p
required in the building code since 1974. has to do with the quality of life and your environment. living in a quieter city as part of the overall concept of what makes our city a more habitable, hospitable place. i argue that that is a green building feature, as well. since 1974, we have a lot of stuff. energy and water conservation. these are already required to be provided at the time of sale of the building. it is very limited at the moment, energy and water conservation. you have to make sure you have a certain volume, 1.6. gallons per flsh. there is an interesting approach to green building, the historical approach, part of the state building code. and what the state says is that where it is a qualified historic building, more than 50 years old and with some historical value -- it does not have to be a resource, but it must be a landmark -- you may use the building code. in lieu of the regular california building code, in place of what they call the regular code. that allows you to do things to preserve the integrity of the building, and people say that saving the building is the gr
and they're deathly. are you removing kids from a learning environment and giving up on them and bringing that down to 4% is really huge and i attribute that to board leadership and restorative practices, leadership at the school sites and to principals and claudia anderson and her team. finally on the test score what is is really clear to me is the achievement gap just persists so in our district the average in english is about 61% of proficient or above which is okay. that's two out of three kids that are proficient or above but we have some groups performing at 85% and some at 35% and one in three proficient or above is just not acceptable. nobody can really say that proclaims success and only one in three this a sub group are proficient and above and math 68% and pretty good overall. we have some students performing at 89% and others at 40%, just two out of five. to close this gap with single dkg itd growth would take 20 years we don't have 20 years so what is really clear from the data is the investment in the superintendent zone, with the school improvement grant, the infusion of
environment providing a safe and nurturing atmosphere for the families. we feel that the families progress through the program living life on life's terms because they experience everyday living. they take care of their children. they cook for their children. they get their children up to go to school. so the benefit of being in a one-shop model where everything is onsite is such a benefit to the families. i think, overall, the families here at the exodus program respond really well to just the genuine concern that our staff displays to them on a day-to-day basis. one of the things that we try to do as early on as possible is to try to have our clients develop a real positive support system. whether it be through church, through meetings, through other peers that are here at the program, reconnecting with their family members. i think that's definitely the first step. well, having a place to live and being around other families that are like ours is very helpful because i feel like we get to help each other. and it's not just me getting help. i see that i am not alone. i enjoy that all of
've opened up an environment for them where it's okay for them to tell me how they feel and talk about what they experienced during my time of addiction and that-validate their feelings. and that it's okay. and they have learned how to trust and move on and are doing fantastic in school and have just really become amazing children, despite the trauma that they experienced at a young age. and this is a key word, fran, trauma. that is really the main issue here. the notion that the kids are traumatized and the trauma really does take a long time for folks to heal. correct? correct. and trauma has a lot of-there's an extended definition of trauma. we used to think of trauma very narrowly and now we're seeing that both in several different cultures and, in this situation of families with young people living with addictions and mental illness, the trauma can be very subtle and doesn't show up until they are adults. the trauma can be very severe and needs to be intervened with right away. so there are all different levels of trauma, but the good news is we also know so much more and we are-all of
a more global environment offers many benefits and increases competition and thus reduce cot cost. it allows for the introduction of new technologies ab cob accepts and supports coalition war fights efforts or makings them less difficult to execute. we can benefit from the lessons learned in efficiency gains from other nations who had militaries that face difficult financial services and forced to drive home the own, quote, better buying power initiative. globalization is frankly not an option. it's a reality. but while buying from a more global environment officers many benefit to the department we must be aware of the significant risks risks. these include but are not limited to the main reason we're here today. the threat of counsel fit or interior parts entering the supply chain, the potential for undue reliance on actually con configuration may not be understood. or the risk of leaked intellectual property to foreign businesses and governments. when it comes to articulating the failure of policy on the subject, particularly as a relate its to cyberspace. one look no further t
a respectful, open environment for all their children and families. children like to feel good about themselves. they enjoy the feeling of not only knowing who they are but also that others appreciate them, respect them, and value their participation in and contribution to the group. children know differences between people's skin color and gender at a very early age... man: ok, guys. child: hey, des. second child: hey, des. third child: hi. he's got his sister. you're his sister. hendrick: which is why it's so important to begin a program of cross-cultural, non-sexist education as early as possible. woman: what we're going to do is... hendrick: our message is a simple one-- that being different, whether in sex, race, culture, or ability, does not mean inferior. or everything was blue. not like that. you said you wanted that shirt. now, wear it. woman: doina, ian gets to decide what he wants to wear, just like you picked that pretty white dress for wearing. hendrick: our challenge in this program is to learn how to teach the principle of equity-- that, while we don't all have to get along with

there is no doubt that we will hold on to their promises on the environment. [applause] of course, there was a time when it looked like they got it. it seems like a long time ago, and there is the naturalist face. the windmills are gently turning, the sun is shining, and the exercise is quite brilliant. partyen at last year's conference they ruined it all, that you can vote blue and go green, but of course you can't. in order to at -- in order to make blue turned to green, you have to add yellow. and that is what we are doing. [applause] what a generous audience. as we plot to prosperity, please remember that nothing that we do will make a decisive business if we don't make the most important investment of all, in investing in the training of young people. the legacy of the educational inequality is an economy operating at half power, never getting the qualifications that they could get, never turning the wages that they could earn. the true cost of this cannot be counted in pounds alone. this is a huge drag on the economy, but more than that, this is part of the natural justice and everything that
for the damage that we are doing out there in the environment. if we can have the two second thought, i have a bag to reuse and that is great. >> the city will hand out free reusable bags at more than 50 events across the city during october and november. >>> well, just last year there was talk of drastic service cuts, now, cal trains is adding trains to meet demand. starting tomorrow, new trains will be add in. ridership hit a new high in june leading to the expansion. >>> a small grass roots breast cancer walk sent a powerful message. 30 people walked today on the 2nd day of the immediate impact breast cancer walk. the idea began in march as a response to the controversy over a national group, susan g.komen for the cure which refused funding for planned parenthood. they designed to walk for a local group instead. >> i think that they have lots of people to answer to and we just decided that it was -- we wanted to direct our attention locally instead of getting confused in the big national political conversation. >> so far the group raised $93,000 and are confident they will reach their goa
environment for students with special needs we recognize the deep and rich partnership for students with special needs shared with key agencies such as families with children with disabilities and host the advisory committee for special education ten times per year. therefore be resolved that the board of education of the san francisco unified school district recognizes support for children with disabilities to be celebrated this friday, september 28, for the agency's tremendous contributions to supporting san francisco public school students and their families through the many activities throughout the year. [applause] >> thank you commissioner. i don't see any public speakers for this. is there a public speaker that didn't sign up? you may come up anyways because you're going to be receiving it, but are there comments from the board first? and then we will bring you up. >> i just want to say that the school district relies on many different organizations but really this agency in particular touches so many of our families that i am pleased to recognize the 30th anniversary for
to stimulate cargo. the cargo has to be there from the manufacturers and from the general economic environment. but next year, the car go industry might pick up a little bit. the conditions for cargo are still very bad now. but again, overall the industry of course is still more passenger than cargo. and it's been a bit of a double whammy this year because for the long call carriers operating out of asia, they're heavily exposed to markets like europe where there's been an impact. >> are we going get anymore meaningful consolidation? i don't see eus saying to america you should really allow for proper mergers between european and u.s. airlines. do you think that's ever going it to be allowed? >> there's still a lot of steps to be taken to allow that to happen. true global consolidation, a lot of countries still have policies that limit foreign investment in the airline sector. so we need to see a lot of changes in the regulatory environment to allow that to happen. in the meantime, we did see a lot of consolidation continue to happen within regions like latin america, like north america, like

". the second study was described in the "new york times" in its environment section on the front page that described data that indicated san francisco bay along the embarcadero may rise 3 feet in the next eight years. the findings of the two studies merit careful consideration of land use questions confronting san francisco. i have described these to the planning department and the port commission and the board of supervisors. approving such significant capital projects should be based on the best and most scientific data preparing against flooding will be expensive, but it is important not to ignore the city's safety based on the most recent data that we have. thank you. >> thank you. is there any additional public comments? seeing none mr. chairman can we close public comment? >> yes. >> okay. public comment is closed. so mr. chairman i move that we forward this to the full board with a positive recommendation. this proposed community safety element went through a very, very lengthy thorough process and public vetting with public hearing and i think it's very, very strong and d

will make the environment better. we had approximately 1,000 overflows occur in 1999. today, we've reduced overflows by 45% to 50%. and it's going to continue to improve as we go forward with the rehabilitation program that's required under the consent decree. narrator: an important piece of the program is the construction of an 8-mile-long storage tank that will significantly decrease combined sewer overflows. man: right now, we're at the bottom of the rockdale construction shaft. we're 310 feet below grade, deep under atlanta in hard rock. in the downtown area of atlanta, the sewer system and the stormwater system are combined and there are overflows during storm events, and so the purpose of this system is to relieve that flow, take it into the tunnel, transport it to a brand-new treatment plant, clean up the chattahoochee river. narrator: instead of the combined sewage overflowing into the river, it will flow into this tunnel that acts as a storage tank. the water will then slowly empty into the new plant for treatment before it's released back into the river. man: the system in total

[ applause ] >> thank you, carl. now we're going to move from the talk about the tech explosion to one of our most significant economic generators, which is the hospitality industry and i think we're going to have some breaking news this morning, if i can call it that. and see some of the first visuals of the moscone center expansion. at least i think so. so we're so fortunate -- i'm not going to waste a lot of time on the introduction, but have i to say that joe, president and ceo of sf travel association, formerly san francisco convention bureau is one of the leaders of the city and has done so much for the industry and for sf travel. and he is going to tell you about the plans for the moscone center expansion. he has done so much and created the san francisco tourism improvement district in 2009 and that actually is helping fund this whole structure. so i'm just going to let j

director of environment in our city has issued a goal for 2020, being mission -- emission free, carbon neutral. that is something that when you think about the economic impact of these new business models, it can contribute quite greatly to that. i am going to answer the question a little bit differently -- i have been inspired by this space considerably. there's a lot more opportunity. cars, so many assets we have in our society. as a city, we own buildings, cubicles, museums, golf courses, so much that we have -- >> yes, but it is our property, right? >> yes. that is a very good point. stewards of these resources, and they are often underutilized resources, so how do we improve access to those? there is a lot to learn from this that could be applied to the public comments. >> thank you. let's open it up. do we have a microphone for people to come to? ok, we will just it old school. if you have a question, raise your hand, and speak loudly. concise questions will be greatly appreciated. >> [inaudible] >> did everyone here that? ok. >> something that is really amazing about the sharing
